Joining Samsung in the mentality of “Lets announce small stuff before MWC so that people don’t notice our gigantic leaks” is Sony Ericsson, who has gone ahead and announced the W395 Walkman phone. It’s not quite the beastly beaut we’re expecting to see next week at Mobile World Congress, but it might be just enough to tide over the desire for more leaks in the meanwhile. What’s that you’re saying? It definitely won’t? Yeah. You’re probably right.

Then again, Sony Ericsson might be getting this announcement out of the way now because its boring. Essentially another who-cares Walkman phone, it’s got a 2.0 megapixel camera, FM, “large powerful built-in stereo speakers” and, well, that’s about it. Full specs after the jump.
